MIAMI (CBS/AP) Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight plans to appeal a judge's decision to dismiss his lawsuit against hip-hop star Kanye West over a beef involving a bullet, according to his lawyer.

Knight was shot in the leg in 2005 at a Miami Beach party hosted by West, and Knight blames West for lax security.

His lawsuit is seeking more than $1 million in damages from West.

Knight's attorney, Mark Brumer, said Friday his client was disappointed in the judge's decision.

The shooter has never been identified.

In Thursday's order, the judge concluded there's no evidence that a shooting at the party was foreseeable.

West's attorney, Adam Josephs, said the lawsuit was ill-conceived from the beginning.
